By moving farther out, it forces the driver to cross the yellow line, and I have found that in most cases, once motorists commit to crossing, they tend to go really far over the yellow line.
+1.

This gives us enough room, and forces the motorist to cross the double yellow to pass, without pissing off motorists at the same time.
